Restaurants in Ridgefield, CT

Ridgefield is a sweet, beautiful little town with some pretty sweet restaurants. Nothing fancy, mind you, unless you consider the Cake Box’s artisan old-school cupcakes (replicating Hostess, but with precious ingredients) fancy. Its downtown features a long-lived hot dog cart named Chez Lenard, and along Route 7, which bypasses the village, is the Ridgefield Ice Cream shop, churning what may be the best soft-serve ice cream anywhere (using vintage Carvel equipment that delivers a dense, creamy product as smooth as silk). Also on Route 7 is the Wooster Hollow Diner, which is several cuts above ordinary diners with its menu of deluxe Benedicts and avocado caprese toast for breakfast and lunch of bacon-egg-cheese Brazilian burgers and Cajun shrimp pineapple wrap. Just down the road in Redding, the place locals love is called the Whistle Stop, located in the old Branchville train station and specializing in broad-topped muffins.
